    As it stands, who can Portland beat convincingly?
    (Note that I do believe that any team can beat any team on any night. )
    Then who can't Portland likely beat as it stands?
    (Be serious here people. I do understand those of you who are very passionate about this team (and I am one of you) might say we can beat anyone, being honest. But for example, can we beat a Miami or an LAL?)

    I think Portland can be a top 4 team in the west.  They can definitly beat the likes of OKC, DAL, and others.  I also think we have the best chance to beat the Lakers out of everyone, but I still think it'd be a longshot in a 7 game series.  I don't think we can beat teams like Miami (of course), Boston, and Orlando.  But considering injuries it's a tough to say.

    We match up well against anyone, Mathews is a beefier version of Batum, we already know mathews can guard Carmello (someone who gave batum some problems last year) and Mathews could probably guard Lebron better than Batum, so I honestly think we can beat anyone in this league, if healthy, our size is going to be able to contend with the lakers and Magic, and is going to cause problems for Miami and other smaller teams. It all depends how much our perimeter defense increases and how healthy teams are next year.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
